#DontDoubleMyGovernment

The solution to unemployment, college expenses, the debt and the deficit is not found in another government program. It is found in less government programs. It is not found in another hand-out from the government. It is found in the American people. It is found in the American character — resilience, hope, determination, perseverance.

The Nascent Requiem — Part III

The issue is not about the availability of health care, it is not about massive effects imposed on the interstate market by a failure to purchase an item, it’s not even about an activity or commerce. This law does not even meet the broad standards purposed by the law’s supporters. The only reason Congress would pass this law would be to expand the power of the government.

The Nascent Requiem — Part II

If the costs imposed by the failure to purchase health insurance justify regulation under the Commerce Clause, how much more should we allow the government to require individuals exercise? Indeed, the federal government has far more justification to require exercise than they do to require the purchase of health insurance.

The Nascent Requiem — Part I

Unfortunately, fiction is so convolved with politics that when we test politics with reality we often finish with confusion. But it must be done. Testing fiction with fiction will only produce fiction, but testing fiction with reality at least gives sensibility a fighting chance. Sensibility was given such a fighting chance against fiction and fabrication in the Supreme Court last month.

CREEPY

The argument against the Chinese model is the strongest because it is both economic and moral. Stern isn’t calling for a change in economic systems, rather a political change. A change from the republic our Founders created to an authoritarian regime that controls a quasi-capitalist market. We already have the capitalism, Stern wants us to adopt the authoritarianism.

We Will Fight Them On the… Whatever…

Obama has left all of the ideological doors open so that he can pop in and out of them at the times when they are popular. In his attempts to look strong he makes himself look weak because trying to prove his strength makes him look insecure. Yet, if he does not show some courage and leadership, he will be accused of the same fault. He does not cling to an ideology — just to himself.

…Paved with [Bad] Intentions

You know the old adage: “The road to hell is paved with good intentions.” The interesting thing is that the road to hell is also paved with bad intentions. So, all in all, following intentions is not the best way to go. The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals recently decided on the infamous Arizona law […]

Well, That Would Require Articulate Republicans

Its seems as though politicians these days, on both sides of the isle, have become less and less articulate. Perhaps it’s because they have less and less good things to say… Anyway, Obama gave another speech yesterday concerning the national debt and, as you can expect, lots of stuff came out of his mouth without […]

Impotent Inimical Insanity

The democrats and republicans have spent most of the recent weeks dominating the news with talk of a government shutdown acting like old men arguing about the best placement of the deck chairs on the Titanic. Now they’ve settled: They’re going to narrow down the number of chairs they argue about. Okay, okay, really: They […]

E-Race Life

All the hubbub surrounding the “victory” of IBM’s computer named “Watson” on Jeopardy! has sparked some of the strangest discussions in public debate.  It’s all so reminiscent of those Sci-Fi movies and TV shows. Watson is IBM’s big machine that calculates the answers to questions, I think they call it the “future.” Some people think […]

When the doctors told my great-grandpa (who was in his late 90’s at the time) that he had arthritis, he stood up and declared: “That’s impossible, arthritis is for old people!” Apple and Facebook, like arthritis, are for old people. Some interesting new data came out this week about who favors (buys) which phone OS. […]

Vote for a Change

While President Barrack Obama figures out how to get his teleprompter to fit in his travel bag so he can show the Indian parliament how it’s done, the early voting has started. Unfortunately, fraud has started along with it. One woman in Nevada went to vote on Tuesday only to find her ballot with Harry […]
